Question: Body Getting Back to Normal After Surgery??


 kristinj25 - Fri Dec 03, 2004 8:13 pm

I had elective surgery 5 months ago. Eventhough I am eating and exercising the same, I have gained 10 lbs. Could this be related to the surgery? Does your body get out of whack after the trauma of surgery and need a period to adjust??
